I was just browsing Vogue and what do you know on the front page there is an article on Diane Kruger.
It’s about her relationship with Karl Lagerfield, and it explains so much as to why she usually favours Chanel.
“He is like a stepfather to me. We’re very close- we just get on so well. I’ve known him since I was 16-years-old, ever since I first started modelling and he has always been so kind.”
I knew she had begun modelling when she was very young and how lucky for her to make such fast friends with one of the fashion industry’s biggest designers.
And on Chanel she says: “What’s not to love about Chanel? It’s timeless, it’s chic. I don’t know many people that don’t like it. I love it.”
One of my favourite looks on the Krug is the twenties style, which she did so well for the AMFAR Cinema Against Aids Charity Benefit in 2008 in a Chanel Haute Couture gown:
And even though this isn’t Chanel, when she stepped out in Jason Wu at the CDFA Fashion Awards in New York in 2009, it really showed just how a simple shaped dress and belt with those amazing power shoulders can make you stand out a mile.
